"I Thought Gluten Free Meant Nasty" Shrimp Pasta

Shrimp Pasta--I happen to have had all the ingredients for this pasta one day--but noticed that I only had the gluten free penne pasta I accidentally purchased...My first thought was "if I ruin all this good Costco oversized shrimp, I will be LIVID. But it came out SO GOOD! So I wanted to share the recipe with you!

2 tbs unsalted butter


2 tbs butter

1 tbs minced garlic

3/4 cup 2% milk

1/4 cup flour

1/2 cup of parmesan cheese


black pepper

  1. Season shrimp with Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, salt, paprika, black pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper in a bowl

  2. Add all of penne pasta to a large boiling pot of water, adding a dash of salt

  3. Let pasta boil for 11 min

  4. Drain pasta and set aside

  5. Place butter in a skillet until melted, and place seasoned shrimp to cook for 3-6 min on each side; remove shrimp from skillet and place on plate

  6. Add butter to skillet, when melted add garlic until translucent

  7. Add flour and whisk for 3 min

  8. Slowly add milk to mixture
